Ronne Darden

Sunrise: September 9, 1956

Sunset: January 14, 2024

Ronne Darden went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 14, 2024.

Ronne was born on September 9, 1956, to the late Violet C. Brown.  For many years, Ronne worked in sanitation services for the City of Portsmouth up until his early retirement.  Ronne was very energetic and loved to make others laugh.  His pleasant personality was contagious to everyone he met.    

Ronne was a giver, who loved his family.  His vivacious and giving spirit will be missed by many.  Ronne was fond of his older brother and always held on to the memories of playing basketball.  Even as his health failed, he would still say, “I think we can take them on the court”.  He was a long time and dedicated fan of the Dallas Cowboys and took great joy in watching football on Sunday.

Ronne was preceded in death by his mother, Violet C. Brown and his sister Barbara Brown.  

He leaves to cherish his loving memories with his brother Vernon Darden (Janice) of Portsmouth, Virginia; two aunts, Mary Joseph (Alfredo) of San Diego, California and Phyllis Richardson of Detroit, Michigan; nieces, cousins, and other family and friends.
